Brewed On Grant: Pittsburgh Promise

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The Pittsburgh Promise has been a remarkable program in that kids who otherwise may not have attended college were able to go. Look, it's not perfect. It may need to be tweaked a bit. It certainly doesn't fix the inferior education that many American students get in some public schools. But it does move things in the right direction. I am glad it will survive.

Honest Debate

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Forget Donald Trump and the nine forced to share the stage with him. Forget the GOP candidates left off the stage because of poll numbers. Forget Hillary of Bernie (fingers crossed) and whoever they face in the general election. Debates don't mean a lot when the real people controlling the show are anonymous donors. We need to get money out of political campaigns.

Budget Talks

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The budget talks in Harrisburg don't seem to be going anywhere. Hopefully, both sides will look to compromise to get a budget passed.

Updated Justice

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The recent body cam video capturing the shooting of an unarmed black man by a University of Cincinnati campus policeman has led to murder charges. Before cell phones and body cams, these kind of cases hinged only on the policeman's account. Videos have revolutionized the way we prosecute excessive force by police.

Trophy Hunter

Written by Rob Rogers on .

You don't have to be anti-hunting to be disgusted with the killing of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe. The world reacted strongly on the internet. I wish people on social media could get half as worked up about the GOP's treatment of the first African American U.S. president.
